Cabin Fever: Afro Prairie Film Festival: Ruby Bridges

Sun, Feb 24 / 1 pm
Directed by Euzhan Palcy
1998, USA, 96 min

The real-life tale of young Ruby Bridges, one of the first African-American children to attend an integrated school in the Deep South. At only age 6, Ruby is selected to attend an all-white school in New Orleans, causing uproar in the racially divided region.


What started as a dream in 2005 has blossomed into a rite of passage for parents and their kids. They can shake the snow off their boots and spend an afternoon at the movies every Sunday all through January and February thanks to the generous support of the Assiniboine Credit Union. Due to the popularity of this series it is our desire that parents and their kids be seated before all others. Thanks for your understanding.

We acknowledge the continued and generous support of the Assiniboine Credit Union. Presented in partnership with the Afro Prairie Film Festival.
